Moving Files from Soon to Be Deleted Google Drive

    Hi there

    I will be shortly leaving my organisation which operates using the G Suite. I need to take my files with me (this is approved) but with over 30GB of stuff on the Drive I am wondering if there is a painless and fast way to do this.

    If I share the access to my outside email (also Gmail) and then Add to my Drive will the files remain in my new Drive once the organisation deletes my account. They are being very accommodating but is my only option to download them to a flash drive?

    You should have them backed up in a second place anyway.
    30GB isn't much - as you said, store them on a flashdrive.
